Hi There.....Are you a fan of animals in the wild?
As I told you in last week's post I am for sure.....and that is why I wanted to write this week and last week's blogs about good causes involving animals. Just follow this link to go to last week's blog post if you are curious to know what it was about.
It's a win-win situation because you get to satisfy your curiosity and I get an extra reader for that post haha 😉
So as promised this week I will be telling you some more about the WCC or Wildlife Conservation Society 😄
It seems they were already founded back in 1895 as the New York Zoological Society. The Wildlife Conservation Society was one of the first conservation organizations in the U.S. They had a clear goal from the beginning to advance wildlife conservation, promote the study of zoology, and create a first-class zoo.
Did you know they have five zoos already.....The Bronx Zoo, Central Zoo, Queens Zoo, Prospect Park Zoo, and New York Aquarium.
I know some of you might say that a zoo is not the right place for an animal.....and they are right in a way because an animal should be free in the wild. I think nowadays people are much more aware of that fact and the wellbeing of an animal should come in the first place.
But these Zoos are working hard together with scientists in the field to save wildlife. Field staff report back their observations of animal behavior and need in nature, which in turn bolsters animal wellbeing in the parks 😃
But it goes much further than just a few Zoos.....their goal is to conserve the world's largest wild places in 16 priority regions, home to more than 50% of the world's biodiversity.
Their strategy for 2020 is to maintain the WCS's historic focus on the protection of species while developing an ambitious plan to engage with the rapidly changing world.
They say that the challenges are greater than ever but with the focus, dedication, and passion of a committed staff.....combined with a unique mixture of field, zoo and aquarium expertise they will continue to set the bar for science, conservation action, and education that has driven their success in protecting wildlife and wild places for over a century.
The WCS envisions a world where wildlife thrives in healthy lands and seas, valued by societies that embrace and benefit from the diversity and integrity of life on earth.
That doesn't sound like an easy task but it makes me glad to hear that people are willing to work hard to make this dream come true 😄
Although I don't want those big animals too close to my bed.....I have a hard time sleeping as it is.....I don't want to wake up hearing things running around in my home. Who knows I might happen to walk into the lion's den instead of my own den 😂
Hope you like my blog post.....Until next time.....Have a great day
